Changes to MSU Extension will affect rural areas

msue_logo According to an UpNorthLive report, MSU Extension will not be eliminated; it will refocus on urban revitalization and the green economy. That probably means a drastic decrease in services in rural areas.

A more equitable solution would be to repurpose MSE Extension toward rural areas, too, such as in the area of broadband adoption. The state government needs to utilize this valuable resource instead of discarding it.
